Created in an easily embeddable format, Super Finale lets fans and video game junkies alike steer Finale through an obstacle course of pipes and brick boxes using their computer’s arrow buttons. Although this version doesn’t let you win the heart of the Princess, you do receive an exclusive FREE download of the Black Milk produced “One Man Show Remix.” In keeping with the era of the game, players are accompanied by a specially commssioned 8-bit (read 1980’s video game soundtrack) version of the track, also available here: “One Man Show”
Before making his entrance into hip-hop, Finale worked as an automotive engineer promising to one day follow his dream of becoming a rapper. Making the rounds at local Detroit open mics and emcee battles, Finale began to mingle with local talents like Guilty Simpson and One.Be.Lo. After emailing some joints back and forth with J Dilla, Finale finally met him backstage at the DEMF (Detroit Electronic Music Festival), where Dilla introduced him to Madlib, saying that he was one of the best in the game. “It was an honor and definitely a defining moment,” says Finale. After realizing his passion and talent for hip-hop, Finale decided to finally quit his day job, follow his true passion, and make music a full-time career. After a handful of Fat Beats released singles, an album released with European producer Spier 1200 as a part of The Rawkus 50, and numerous appearances on independent releases from Invincible, eLZhi and others, Finale’s official debut LP, A Pipe Dream & A Promise, will be released in stores and online on Aptil 7th via Interdependent Media.
